The Nursing Care Quality Assurance Commission (NCQAC) concludes that it is within the scope of practice of an advanced registered nurse practitioner (ARNP) to treat patients using acupuncture techniques following successful completion of additional training in medical acupuncture as described in this advisory opinion. An ARNP cannot use the title of East Asian Medical Practitioner (EAMP) or acupuncturist unless the ARNP is licensed as an EAMP.
